think it's the first reference that i saw in here at least he writes about bobby, and he later wrote the great book about bobby after his death. but he said to the editor of the new york times in ten of 1954, robert kennedy's letter is such an astonishing mixture of distortion and error that it deserves comment. [laughter] and the times for arguing that the trouble lay not with yalta, but with the subsequent violations. mr. kennedy suggested the agreement gave manchuria to soviet russia. china shall retain full sovereignty in manchuria. not that many years later he writes the most persuasive letter to "the new york times" about why bobby kennedy will be a good senator from the state of new york and why he deserves to run. so's not inflexible in terms of making judgments about things. but for me at least, watching that mind at work and watching him on the american landscape and not just going with the winds, but making strong judgments, this was an area that he knew well and probably did know a lot more than bobby did about what happened at yalta and was not afraid to pull his chain.
." the number for republicans, 202- 585-3881. democrats, 202-585-3880. .ndependent, 202-585-3882 bobby jindal. let's listen to what he had to say. [video clip] >> we made the right decision not to expand medicaid. we are building a bottom-up alternative, delivering better health care for our people. host: your take. guest: they are not expanding coverage to uninsured residents. if you think that is important, it is not going to accomplish that. he may not want to spend the money on that. there are concerns about not enough primary care doctors. there may be interesting things with health care delivery at the state level in the way that medicaid is carried out. know where are they attempting to get health coverage to these folks, with one possible exception in wisconsin. scott walker has shifted some of the medicaid people onto the exchanges and offered medicaid. that may be on hold because of the problems at the federal exchanges. host: when you look at these decisions, who is making the decision, the governor or someone else? guest: for the most part it is governors who were never interested
, the u.s. government was silent. in 1966, bobby kennedy went to south africa and took a stand against racism. giving the greatest speech he ever delivered. >> each time a man stands up for an ideal, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. >> reporter: from lbj to nixon to jimmy carter, south africa's apartheid government was actually a u.s. ally in the cold war. as the anti-apartheid movement grew, a young college student named barack obama was inspired by mandela to give his first political speech. the man in the white house then said no to sanctions. against south africa, insisting they wouldn't work. congress defied ronald reagan and imposed them any way. reagan took his own stand against apartheid by appointing the first black man as ambassador to africa. four years later, mandela was free. his first visit to america. warmly welcomed at the white house. >> mr. mandela, a man who embodies the hopes of millions. >> reporter: it was bill clinton with whom he would develop the closest bond. mandela, now president of south africa, visited the white house during the darkest days of the cl
resumes are as long as july is hot. joe torre, bobby cox and tony la russ russa will be ensliehrined in t hall of fame. they led their teams to 17 pennants and eight world series titles. torre won four of those championships with the new york yankees, including three straight from '98 through 2000. larussa won nearly as many games as he made calls to the bull pen, finishing his career third on the all time wins list. while cox only claims a single championship banner, he skippered the braves to 14 straight post season appearances. >>> the pop culture lead now. given the kind of weather most of us suffered through this weekend, it's no wonder a movie named "frozen" took top spot at the box office, hauling in more than $31 million in its second weekend. that was enough to dethrone the "hunger games" sequel which had been holding steady at number one for two weeks in a row. rounding out the top three, "out of the furnace" which didn't exactly heat things up. it earned a disappointing $5 million in its opening weekend. >>> remember the adam sandler classic "that's my boy"? a pithy examination
a national set of strategic goals, this one. >> bobby jindal asked me to go out to the republican governor's association. went out. talked to a couple of panels. had dinner there. i was stunned. i was stunned that these republican governors were all talking solutions. i'm sure democratic governors are doing the same thing. haley said we can't afford to shut down the government. i was blown away by how positive and forward thinking they were. how they worked with democrats because they had to work with democrats. man, talk about being a governor and then being a senator and is it getting any better? >> well, it's hard to compare any job to governor. that's one of the better jobs in the country. jon and i became very close friends working through the national governor's association. it wasn't a republican or democrat problem. we found somebody that had a fix whether it's education, highways, helping the elderly or veterans. we would call each other and said how did do you that. he would say try this. we're missing that. it's difficult. it's so highly charged from the standpoint of, there's s
